I told y'all about how anytime I saw a "hashtag" I read it in my head as "pound"... confession,
I totally still do it.
If saying "Pound" before every hashtag is wrong, I don't wanna be right, mmkay?
I'm a moron.
So I posted this the other day on Instagram...
|yes, I realize there's a typo. suck it iphone.|
On the same day I went cold turkey with no social media past 5pm. (Actually The Hubs and I changed it to 6pm).
It wasn't that hard. twss
But honestly, let's think about it guys... how much time do YOU spend on social media?
Facebook, Tweeter (ew), Instagram, emailing, Keek, whatever!
I can tell you right now, I spend way too much.
My family needs my attention.
I have hundreds of emails in my inbox. Up until a few months ago I was somehow keeping up with them all. I find that damn near impossible these days.
I am very sorry, y'all, but my family comes first. ALWAYS.
And I've found myself too wrapped up in social media lately.
It's causing problems.
And I'm putting an end to it.
What happened to the days where we used to have dinner with our spouses and we both weren't on our phones at the same time and we actually TALKED!?!?
I want that back.
So I'm stepping back for a bit.
I'll still be here.
And on Instagram.
And I'll try to email as much as possible.
But only during the hours of 6am-6pm.
After that, I'm out.
Stick a fork in me.
So I'm making this a challenge.
And it starts on Monday, April 1st.
And no, this is not an April Fools prank.
Let's step back, put down our damn iphones, and BE PRESENT!
Or as I've moronically named it, #PoundBePresent
Present in the moment.
Present with our families.
Present with our friends.
And not scrolling through our phones so obsessed with what others are doing.
I hope you guys take this challenge with me.
Do what you can, adjust the hours if you need to, twerk it (yeah, I said it), just make it work for YOU.
